Featured speakers are Dr. Brian Trader, Deputy Executive Director and Director of Horticulture at Delaware Botanic Gardens (DBG), who will discuss “The Delaware Botanic Gardens and the Future: Protecting our Coastal Plain,” and Dr. Ashley Kennedy, a Board-Certified Entomologist, a Science Policy Fellow of the Entomological Society of America, and a member of the Delaware Native Species Commission. Currently an Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education postdoctoral fellow in the Tick-Borne Disease Laboratory at the Army Public Health Center (Edgewood, Maryland), who will talk about the “Insect Apocalypse” and what it means for backyards. A discussion will follow their presentations.
